Congratulations to Jessie Vargas for getting right what we see so many people getting wrong. According to NJ.com’s Kevin Shea Vargas saw a house fire this morning in Trenton, New Jersey and helped first. Only then did he fire up the phone and go live on Facebook.
A man driving on Greenwood Avenue Wednesday morning spotted smoke coming from a duplex home and rushed inside.
First, Jessie Vargas joined with two women in a homemade firefighter effort – throwing buckets of water onto the flames burning in a second-floor bedroom.
Then, when the flames and smoke grew too much for them, he assisted the women out as Trenton firefighters and EMS arrived. Ambulances took them to a city hospital for treatment of smoke inhalation, officials said.
Vargas then fired up Facebook live on his cell phone and started broadcasting from the scene, shortly after 9 a.m.
